, quote, next week we will authorize a three-month temporary debt ceiling increase. that was the announcement from the majority leader of the house republicans announcing they are giving up on what they had been saying for months was their plan, to not approve an increase in the debt ceiling to thereby push the country again into a self-imposed economic crisis and threat of defaulting on our national debt and all the panic we know that causes because they did it before in 2011. and eric cantore announced today they are not going to do that again even though they had been saying for months that they would. they gave up today on that threat. that's why the vix panic index stopped panicking today. that's the nice kickoff for what should be a nice weekend for the president. >>> new second term official portrait. to refresh your memory, this is the first term one. same flag pin, similar blue tie, i guess. lots more gray up top. i don't know why they decided to go from the close cropped i.d. photo look from the first term to the i'm standing here in my office and i'm happ

standoff, one of the issues was when would the next debt ceiling be reached, annoy, remember the republicans -- and even harry reid suggested that they do this every six months, get a temporary extension and come back in six months. at one point the republicans were proposing three extensions, three votes before the next election. and the president, meeting with his own aides about this said that's it. i'm done. i'm not doing this. this is not how the constitution was meant -- was designed. our founding fathers did not envision a day when members of congress could hold the president hostage by not paying the bills they themselves had racked up. and as often happens in these situations, the cooler heads on his staff said, well, mr. president, we understand how you feel, but we may have to cut the -- no, i'm not going to do it. he was very firm because he believed it was not just affecting him but about preserving the status of the presidency for future presidents. and in the end one of the things he was most proud of in that deal was not giving in to that. but at the time, the

that they were going to postpone for three months, that they would raise the debt ceiling both on it next week. i think th president understood that he came out of the initial round strengthened and the republicans came out weakened. right now, the republican party is in as bad shape politically as i can ever remember it being. the republican party which was favorable in public opinion just as recently as two years ago is now minus 23% unfavourable. john boehner, who was favorable has dropped to the point where he is 19% unfavourable in public opinion polls. it is the lowest ever recorded in the history of "the wall street journal," nbc poll so they had to get out of this. they couldn't face this fight again. in the sense of people is that if it did lead to the government defaulting on its obligations and social security checks not going out, checks not going out to personnel, the republicans would be blamed again. so i think the president understood the advantage he had. and he played it. >> and the republicans understood their own situation in today's actions. >> the professionals did, john boe

a bill next week to raise the debt limit ceiling for three months, the bill does not ask for spending cuts but could prevent a major fight with the white house. it does put the senate in an awkward position, by asking them to vote in three months when the debt ceiling has to be raised again. the white house said to be encouraged but a provision calls for cutting pay for the chamber that does not passes the budget. some democrats not happy. and house minority speaker nancy pelosi saying it's a gimmick, unworthy of the challenges we face and the debate we should be having. the message from the american people is clear, no games no default. for more on this, i would like to bring kristin. what is the white house saying about the issue? >> reporter: craig, they are saying that they are encouraged by the fact that house speaker, john boehner, is putting forward a proposal that increases the debt limit without an equal amount of spending cuts. that was his long-held position a and he is abandoning that position, and saying that he will increase the debt ceiling for a period of three months

the debt ceiling for three months until april 15. but there's a catch: they say within that time the senate and the house must pass budgets outlining their spending priorities for the year. now, that may not sound very difficult, but as republicans like to point out, senate democrats haven't passed a budget since 2009 and republicans say if they don't do so by april 15 then all members of congress should stop getting paid. >> pelley: but, nancy, why would the republicans abandon their demand for dollar-for-dollar spending cuts in exchange for raising the limit? >> well, in part they were worried about getting the blame if there was a default. this way they shift the burden to senate democrats to come up with a budget and they can still call for more spending cuts in three months when this comes up again. in the meantime, everyone gets a bit of breathing room which is why the white house may not have shot down the plan today-- even though they, of course, prefer a long-term extension of the debt ceiling, not just three months. >> pelley: nancy, thanks. president obama is about to begin his s

of arrangement. and we have the infamous debt ceiling that will come into play. we will see a lot of activity in the next few months, debates about the purpose of the government, about the size of the deficit, and a lot of back- and-forth over these three issues. i want to say one word about the debt ceiling. not many people understand what the debt ceiling is about. raising the debt ceiling, which congress has to do periodically, gives the government the ability to pay its existing bills. it doesn't create new deficits. it does not create new spending. so not raising the debt ceiling is sort of like a family, which is trying to improve its credit rating, shane, i know how we can improve our credit rating. we will pay your credit card bills. that is not the best way to improve your credit rating. all of these issues are important, but it is very important that congress take necessary action to raise the debt ceiling to avoid a situation where our government does not pay its bills. >> and number of people have expressed concern about how much of the chill news were addressed in the deal. it we
